Christine, Thank you for running the very successful collection effort at Anna's. In addition to editing our online, home town newspaper (almost around the clock), you are also in the thick of local charitable efforts. This will be a merry Christmas for lots of families and kiddies. Helen

The drive ended Wednesday, though you may still be able to contribute at the Community Center on School Lane, which is where donations are organized for distribution.
